    Did you all catch what Michael said about Ed? "He was in really good spirits."

    That's NOT the kind of thing you say about ANYONE who is doing all right. There is something strange about that comment.

    I would have much rather heard Mike say Eddie "was in really good shape."

    "Spirits" just sounds... Like something a friend says about you when you're sick. &lt;--- Purely speculation, on my part.

    I don't know how much you can really read into that, but it certainly doesn't sound great.

    I wondered about that too. My take is that maybe he was refering to Ed's frame of mind considering Mother Van Halen's sickness. Just a thought, but who knows what to make of such comments during an unrehearsed interview.

    BTW, I don't think MA would throw in that Ed was itchin' to get out and play and that we would see VH again real soon if Ed was in bad shape. ??

    When I first read it, I didn't think too much of it. But after reading these posts and thinking about it, I'm wondering if Al or some other member of his family isn't doing too good. I know there was some rumor about Ed's mom being sick.

    At this point (and others for the past 3 years), who knows anything.

    My guess would be that since Van Halen is not a band, and apparently is doing squat, and Sam an Dave are goin' on tour and MA is recording with Sam and others, Ed's spirits are good considering that. How can you not be bummed when your current and ex band mates are rockin' the house while you have your thumb up your ass?? And it's his own damn fault.

    When I hear that phrase, "He was in good spirits" I always expect to hear, "...all things considered, what with (insert appropriate explanation here)."

    The only way we'll ever know though is if someone tells us, and they ain't talking. [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img]
